Red Footed Snail

Once, I discovered these beautiful Red Footed Snails at the LFS. They are also called Mexican Red Foot or Norrisa Top Shell, and are reported to consume green hair algae and cyano bacteria. Why don't we all have these?!? Somewhat expensive at $5 each, they do better in cooler water (around 72F) so life expentancy will be short in tanks running tropical temperatures (78-81F). The bright red is a real eye catcher, contrasted by a black mouth and white foot.
